Red Sox rule 5 comings and goings

From MLB transactions: Selected RHP Jamie Vermilyea in the Major League phase of the Rule 5 Draft; Selected RHP Victor Ramos, RHP Jason Richardson, and INF David Bacani in the Minor League phase. They lost no one in the ML phase, but lost Henry Cabrera (rhp) and Vince Harrison (3b) in the MiL phase.

Here’s the BA Breakdown

Vermilia had a GB/FB over 2.0 last year and has generally had awesome HR rates. Looks like a big gb guy. I hope to hell he doesn’t stick with the club and take up a spot. I ...

Red Sox Rule 5 Thread

According to the ‘Notes in a Minor Key’ thread, these are the guys we stand to possibly lose:

Chad Spann Red Sox 3B
Charlie Zink Red Sox RHP
Ian Bladergroen Red Sox 1B
Jose Vaquedano Red Sox RHP

If I were the Mets or Braves, I’d take one of the Red Sox pitchers, start him each of the first 5 ST games, then send him back.

(Also, I’ve banned Nate from advocating that we Rule 5 Steven Andrade. If you see him doing it, smack him one. :) )

The Market for Manny

A couple weeks ago, I thought Manny was out the door for sure, and with a decent return coming back. But recent developments have made me think twice about both. The two players who I think have been the best comps for Manny have been dealt, and haven’t brought back much. In Thome’s case, he has serious health concerns, so it’s understandable that the Phils will pick up half his contract. But I think the Delgado case makes things look very poor for Manny. Delgado has very similar value to Manny ...

Red Sox 40 Man Roster - Crunch Time?

I believe 10 players are free agents. (Mueller, Mantei, Stanton, Myers, Timlin, Graffanino, Millar, Olerud, Kapler, and Damon)
I believe 5 players are arbitration eligible. (Wade Miller, Bronson Arroyo, Roberto Petegine, Jeremy Gonzalez, Chad Harville).  The only 1 will definitely be offered arbitration (Bronson).
I believe 1 player will surely be removed from the 40 man. (Bausher)

That leaves 26 players:

Pitchers

Abe Alvarez
Chad Bradford
Matt Clement
Manny Delcarmen
Lenny DiNardo
Keith ...

Sox lose by 1, Nixon 0-3 vs. a lefty!

(Please spare me the “playing Trot Nixon isn’t the reason the Red Sox lost. I know that, but it is one of them.)
